This Week in History

It is the Holiday Season!
From the deck of the new library, the holiday scene signs brightly!  The Board of Trustees and the Staff of the Holderness Free Library wish you and yours a very Happy Holiday Season!

Become A Library Friend!
How important are Friends groups? They make all the difference in an active vibrant library like ours!  From book and bake sales, to the Santa Sale, from raffles to their generousity, they add that special element to make the library what it is.  New members are always welcomed.  The next meeting is Saturday, January 13th at 12:30 p.m. at the library.
Book Discussion - Wednesday, Janury 17th @ 12:30 pm
A Book Discussion Group offers individuals an opportunity to read and share ideas and opinions of books in a friendly, relaxed environment. It encourages participants to read different types of books that they might otherwise overlook. Everyone then has a chance to enjoy talking about the books that are read.  On January 17th we will discuss Amor Towles' book  A Gentleman in Moscow. Limited copies of the book are available at the library. All are welcome!
